About me

Navigating the world with a loud and negative inner dialogue is exhausting. Therapy offers a space to explore the difficult beliefs we hold about ourselves, our capabilities, and what we deserve.


For many people, starting therapy feels like a big step. It might even be something you have been meaning to do for a while but keep putting off. Whilst it's normal and natural to worry, in my experience, therapy often becomes a comforting and encouraging space. 

Research shows that the bond between a client and their therapist is the key to a positive outcome. I care deeply about building a genuine relationship rooted in trust, honesty, and warmth, one that can endure gentle challenges. The goal is to support you in reflecting on unhelpful behavioural patterns and coping strategies, guiding you towards more fulfilling ways of managing life's challenges. This process can have a profound impact on the relationship we have both with ourselves and those around us.

Prior to becoming a therapist, my background was in training and development, particularly mental health, corporate wellbeing, and management training, predominantly working with clients in the media industry. I therefore understand the demands and challenges of both creative and corporate environments, and the impact work can have on our levels of anxiety and overwhelm. Therapy has the power to create change in both our personal and professional lives; as we evolve internally, our external circumstances often reflect this growth.

My approach

As an integrative practitioner, I am guided by the principle that no single approach to therapy that works best for everyone. Broadly speaking, my approach has been influenced by psychotherapeutic theories, neuroscience, and evidence-based techniques. I am particularly interested in and informed by the following:

  • Psychodynamic Theory: I'm interested in exploring how early relationships and experiences shape adult attachment patterns. Understanding these influences not only sheds light on your relationship with others but also on the one you have with yourself.

  • Neuroscience-Informed and Body Based Approaches: Often, when we find ourselves consistently operating from a state of heightened activation and dysregulation, we tend to dwell primarily in our minds, disconnected from our bodily sensations. However, delving into the physiological responses elicited by our emotional triggers can provide us with a heightened sense of self-awareness and equip us with the tools needed for improved regulation.

  • Existential Therapy: I integrate a philosophical perspective into our sessions, exploring your unique interpretation of life, the world, and yourself. Drawing from existential philosophy, I believe that a meaningful life entails taking ownership of our choices, thereby granting us greater agency over our lives.

  • Trauma-Informed Practice: I have completed extensive additional training in trauma and work in a trauma-informed way. I understand the complex impact trauma has on a person's ability to cope and how they make sense of the world around them. The emphasis is on guiding you to process any trauma you’ve experienced but only ever in a safe and steady way.

  • Relational Therapy: A strong therapeutic relationship can be extremely nourishing and reparative. I work relationally and the focus is on building warm and genuine relationships with my clients, enabling us to navigate gentle challenges together.

I practise in an inclusive way that values diversity across age, race, background, gender, sexuality, and relationship styles. I have significant experience supporting neurodivergent clients and work in a neuro-affirmative way.

Not everyone has a specific reason that brings them to therapy, but it can be useful for a range of more specific experiences such as:

  • Anxiety

  • Stress

  • Depression

  • Relationship difficulties

  • Abuse and other traumatic experiences

  • Sexuality and identity questions

  • Obsessive Compulsive Disorder

  • ADHD overwhelm

  • Self-harm

  • Masking

  • Isolation and loneliness

  • Grief and loss (Bereavement, Divorce, Redundancy)

  • Lack of meaning and purpose

Therapy sessions take place at the same time each week and are 50 minutes long. I usually work on an open-ended basis, meaning that therapy often lasts for at least six months and goes on for as long as you wish to continue. If you are interested in working in a short term time-limited format (6-12 sessions) this is something we can discuss.
